Visited with family on a Saturday for an early dinner, after showing them the view from the roof of One New Change. As we were seated we were asked by our waitress if we had any dietary requirements. I made her aware I was pescatarian and didn't eat meat. I was given a meat-free menu, which was fantastic, which allowed... More

Lovely dining experience - the food is delicious and refined and the service is excellent in a lovely ambience but it is very expensive for what it is. It is not traditional dimsum but the dishes are innovative and a modern take on the usual dumplings and buns. Not cheap but I will be back for special occasions, to be... More

Ping Pong is a chain of restaurants I've never tried before till now. My Chinese friend always leads us toward Chinatown, so there's been no real reason to visit - but I was in this area on this dreary Sunday and decided to give it a whirl. The interior of the restaurant is modern luxe, with mostly stools in lieu... More

My partner and myself came for a birthday meal.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
